Contraception Cost, Insurance and Payment

Before you get contraception, you'll need to know cost, how to pay and insurance coverage, if any.

Many insurance plans pay, partially or in full, for contraception. However, you are responsible to contact your insurer to learn about your coverage, and you are responsible to pay for any costs that insurance does not pay. UHS staff can never guarantee insurance coverage.

If you are a currently enrolled U-M student (Ann Arbor campus), your health service fee will cover the cost of clinic visit(s) plus device insertion / removal. You are responsible for cost of any device and medication. See costs below.

If you plan to use insurance, you must call your health insurance company, or your prescription plan, using the number on your card, to ask:

  • Whether and what insurance will pay
  • Whether insurance will pay for costs at UHS
  • What costs you will be responsible to pay

If you want to get an IUD or implant at UHS, you will be asked to sign a waiver stating that you understand you may be asked to personally pay any fees not covered by your insurance. If you cannot or will not sign that waiver, you cannot have an IUD or implant inserted and will need to consider other contraceptive options.

You have multiple options for Payment at UHS, including billing to your student account. 

Your insurance company may need some of the following information in order to best help you, so please refer to it when you call.
